Need information about twx_named_user feature. It showing as false.

Hi,

 

I have installed Thingworx 8.3 on Ubuntu platform. The license is installed successfully. 

The license file was able to rename as "successfull_license_capability_response.bin".

After running the "GetCurrentLicenseInfo" service from the LicensingSubsystem, twx_name_user 

is showing as false. I need some information about the feature. What could be the impact of this feature

if it does not appear as true?

I have attached the screenshots of the output of below services:

GetCurrentLicenseInfo

GetLicenseState

 

Please help on this.

Re: Need information about twx_name_user feature. It showing as false.

What happens if you run "acquire license" service in the licensing subsystem?

Re: Need information about twx_name_user feature. It showing as false.

After running the acquire license service it gives the below message:

Unable to acquire license.  Please see log for errors.

I have attached screenshot of the service also.

Please find the application logs also:

Re: Need information about twx_name_user feature. It showing as false.

Go in the Composer -> System -> Subsystems -> LicensingSubsystem -> Services.

Find the service called “GetInstanceID” and execute it (by clicking “Test"). Copy the result. 

Follow this guide to obtain the license file:

https://support.ptc.com/lm/ThingWorx_Navigate_8.1_Licensing_Instructions.pdf

Re: Need information about twx_name_user feature. It showing as false.

Hi,

The license file I have generated by instance id only. As the instance id we can get from the "licenseRequestFile.txt" i.e. generated in the ThingworxPlatform folder also. For generating the license file I had followed the same method as written in the guide. After generating the license file,

I have renamed it as license_capability_response.bin which was able to rename as successful_license_capability_response.bin itself after restarting the tomcat. I have checked that the instance id given by "GetInstanceID" service and by "licenseRequestFile.txt" is same.

After doing some research I found below link on twx_name_user:

 

https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article?n=CS271950&language=en&posno=1&q=twx_named_user&source=search

 

Here it is mentioned that:

  • If the twx_named_user feature is missing, you may have to map additional Activation IDs to your device (typically "ThingWorx User" item) - see Changes to Licensing in ThingWorx 8.1 - Which Activation ID(s) to pick ?

But this is given for Thingworx 8.1, its not confirm if it works with 8.3 as well.

Re: Need information about twx_name_user feature. It showing as false.

I just confirmed that should work on 8.3 as well.

Hi posipova,

 

Thanks for helping on the issue. As the link which i shared previously does not give the enough information about twx_named_feature so some information about twx_named_user feature still will be helpful. The only thing they have mentioned that there could be issue in importing the entities and extensions without this feature.

 

Re: Need information about twx_name_user feature. It showing as false.

I apologize for the delayed response. With the issue happening when you manually generate the license file, I would contact your sales representative or TSAM to have the licensing team check into this for you. Thank you for your patience!

Re: Need information about twx_name_user feature. It showing as false.

Thanks for your response ! :) If you need any information regarding that please let me know.
